In most cases, they don't want to destroy the data. Anyone wants to retrieve their important data from a failed hard drive or a damaged media.  We've had successful experiences with WeRecoverData in retrieving critical data from damaged hard drives.

Destroying Data

Even destroying data on a computer requires work. Deleting all files and then overwriting the disk with random or unimportant data is certainly an approach. As multiple overwrites occur, the data become harder and harder to recover. Destroying the physical disk is another approach.  I was surprised to find that the steel used in my disk drive was so hard that it broke my drill bit before the drill bit reached the disk platter.

With components buried in the SmartPhone which makes them hard to remove and destroy discretely, scrubbing SmartPhones is a much more challenging task.

Funny thing is, all too often when we WANT the data, it can't be retrieved.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
